The Trevor Swan Distinguished Lectures in Economics.
Professor Trevor Swan was the foundation Professor of Economics at the ANU. Trevor Swan is often regarded as the greatest economist that Australia produced. Three Nobel prizes in economics have been awarded for work of which Swan himself was a pioneer – Solow’s, for his work on neoclassical growth models; Klein’s, for macroeconomic model-building and forecasting; and Meade’s, for integrating issues of internal and external balance.
Professor Swan’s standing internationally as an economist of the first rank was recognized in 1963 when he was invited to give Marshall Memorial Lectures at the University of Cambridge. He was Irving Fisher Visiting Professor at Yale, Visiting Professor at MIT, and Visiting Professor at the University of Southampton; in 1958-59 he led the MIT Economic Mission to India.
In his Inaugural Lecture on 23 May, Scientia Professor Peter Swan talked in great details about life of Trevor Swan and also presented The Market Structure Irrelevance Principle, & the Equity Premium Puzzle.
